Giada De Laurentiis is a Los Angeles-based celebrity chef who's published several cookbooks and hosts several shows for Food Network. Born in Rome, Italy, she grew up surrounded by homemade Italian cooking. As a child, she and her family moved to California, where she spent countless hours at her grandfather's restaurant DLL Foodshow. Upon graduating from UCLA with a degree in anthropology, Giada studied cuisine and pastry at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France. She then returned to Los Angeles and trained further at the Ritz Carlton Fine Dining Room and Wolfgang Puck's Spago, and later started up her own catering business in the city. She was discovered by Food Network in 2002 and has been a mainstay on their lineup ever since.

“Parisians take their work quite seriously, but they take their enjoyment of the little moments just as seriously. Sometimes sitting in a café with close friends or family and enjoying a shared plate of macarons is just as important as sitting in an office working. You know, some Parisians start their morning with a mug of hot chocolate.
Really? Emilia asked, taking a fourth and fifth sip.
The chocolate is like medicine to take away your troubles and help you see that life is sweet.”
Giada De Laurentiis, Paris!

“It's pronounced wee but spelled O-U-I. It's all you'll want to say when you're sitting at one of the thousands of little cafes that line the streets and you're looking at a menu full of foods you just want to eat for days. And then you wake up early, and the sun is rising in shades of pink over the white buildings as you make your way through the sleepy streets until you're upon the fresh markets!”
Giada De Laurentiis, Paris!

“You just need a little perspective. Warmed chocolate can give you that.”
Giada De Laurentiis, Paris!
